Emergency Notifications

Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District
Emergency Notification System


InformaCast© by Singlewire, is a robust system that provides alerts/notifications about emergency situations on campus by way of SMS, land line, cell phone, email, select desktop computers, and the mobile app. When  an incident requires notification and immediate attention, InformaCast© can deliver messages containing text, text-to-speech and audio.  It is a fast and reliable means of notification.

All current Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District staff, faculty, and students (those enrolled in current semester) may have alert messages sent to one or multiple devices based on the situation and your user profile. Please add your cell phone number at a minimum, via the mobile app, so you can receive messages in the most expedient manner.

Most people carry their cell phones with them wherever they go. A text message that shows up on your cell phone is most likely to get your immediate attention.


After you add a phone number, via Self Service on the mobile app or through the website, the system will require you to verify the phone number entered.  You will immediately receive an email asking you to confirm.  

The message is a legal requirement of the phone carriers, and confirms that your number has been entered into the notification system.


With InformaCast© you have the ability to add up to fourteen devices, with a maximum of five designated as Android or iOS, and up to three (per type) designated as SMS, Phone Call, and email.


No. Once your phone number has been enabled, it stays registered within the system.


You will still receive voice messages at the phone number you provided.

Make sure all devices have been added and enabled via Mobile app or website. What you list there is what the system will send to, again depending on what devices are triggered when a message goes out. 


Stay calm and follow any instructions provided in the alert message. Call our Emergency Information Line at 1-800-550-3922 for updates on the incident.

If you have questions or need assistance, please complete the Contact Form and someone will get back with you within 1 working day.
